Happy Hour usually involves a social setting and drink or food specials. Full Tilt Poker has put a bit of a twist on it by offering Happy Hour with the online social setting - at poker tables - but instead of food and drink, they offer double and sometimes triple Full Tilt Points by simply playing the ring games and tournaments already on your list of favorites.
Opportunities for Happy Hour points are simple to find. Simply look at the schedule of tables, and in the far right column, there will be round, yellow smiley faces next to the games and tournaments that are designated Happy Hour promotions. Play at one of those tables and earn Full Tilt Points at two or three times the usual rate, and those points will automatically appear in your account. They can also be tracked by going to the Happy Hour page in the promotion section of your cashier page.
Points are typically accumulated for every dollar in rake that is dropped, and fractions are included when the rake is less than one dollar. Up to three points can be earned per hand. And in sit-n-go’s and tournaments, seven points are earned for every one dollar in entry fees, and there is no limit as to the number of points earned there. But sign up for a Happy Hour game or tournament, and those points are double or triple, allowing you to accumulate points at an even greater rate.
Why should you care about your Full Tilt Points? Because you can spend them! Those points are good for gear in the Full Tilt Store, where items like plasma televisions, laptop computers, iPods, golf clubs, and Full Tilt jerseys are for sale and can be purchased using Full Tilt Points. The store is continuously expanding to include more items, so there are never-ending ways to spend those points.
